Well I was going to post a picture or two but I don't have the file attachment option.

I found a 1988 ski barge that has the potential for a rebuild project. I'm wanting a fishing skiff and was wondering if anyone has experience with this brand. It does not have power at this time and can not be put in the water before the purchase. Any info would be helpful. Its 18.5 feet, CC, fiberglass, rated for 90 hp. Thanks

They were nice, well made boats for the time. The Kenners always built good boats. The Fishin Ski Barge was basically the precursor to all modern "bay" boats.

I'm anything but a racist. Why can't they hire a few AMERICANS here and there. Oh, that's right, they might have to pay them a living wage. Sorry about that.
Don't ask me how I know. I just do.

I have a 1989 19' CC Fishin'Ski Barge (Barracuda 190) with a 140 Evinrude. I am only the 2nd owner. The original owner picked it up at the factory in AR. It is an exceptional bay and flats boat. I plan on keeping it forever. The only change I would make is if I can find a deal on an E-tec.

You can hot link here. Works with most pics.

Right click on the image. Hit "copy" then in the THT post/response window, right click and hit "paste."

Good luck!

JPB55, are you looking for a buyer for this boat? I would be interested. Thank you, Travis.

I bought a 20 ftr today, hull only. I had a 20 footer before and it was my all time favorite boat but it was totally worn out. I bought a 14 ftr recently that needs considerable work. Love them old barges

used to work at a marina that used them for rentals with 90hp mercs, tough, tough boats got lots of abuse, hulls were very flat probably a good flat calm water boat. Most folks renting them used them to ski or tube. Performed well for as flat as they are.

Loved my 18, simple boat worked great. I'd think she'd be a great shallow water boat within reason.
